e-Cigarettes | How Do I Get Started ?
Basically, there are 3 types of electronic cigarettes, a Cigalike, Pen Style Mods, and Box Mods.
All have a few things in common like a battery for power, and a cartridge or atomiser which contains a heating coil and the flavoured e-liquid and work by heating up the e-liquid that forms a steam like vapor which the user inhales and exhales mimicking the smoke from a tobacco cigarette.
One thing all these devices have in common is that unlike tobacco cigarettes they use steam to make vapor, there is no combustion of materials to make the smoke when tobacco is burned in tobacco cigarettes which contains proven carcinogens, and they are only a fraction of the cost of smoking conventional tobacco cigarettes.
What Is a Cigalike?
A Cigalike (short for cigarette-like) or analogue cigarette is an electronic cigarette made to look and feel as much as possible to a real tobacco cigarette. They are small, light and mimic all the design features of real cigarettes, down to the filter pattern and the ash-like LED tip that lights up a red glow when activated.
In the early days of the electronic cigarette, virtually all devices on the market were cigalikes. Manufacturers believed the familiar look and feel would make it easier for smokers to switch to electronic cigarettes, and statistics proved they were right. Nowadays, a lot of vapers use more efficient e-cig models like the AIO (all in one) eGo or various other “mods”, but cig-alikes are still the most popular among casual vapers looking for something small and easy to use.
The two-piece technology EasyPuff uses is a hybrid version that uses a disposable atomizers and cartridge. When empty this is simply unscrewed from the battery and replaced with a fresh cartridge. In terms of functionality, cigalikes are no different than larger e-cigarette models. However, most of them are made up of a cartomizer and a battery, while other, more advanced models have replaced the cartomizer with clearomizers and tanks.
Cig-alikes may look almost identical to real cigarettes, but they do have their shortcomings. In order to make them small and light, manufacturers can only fit them with low capacity batteries than need to be recharged more often than the larger eGo, for example. The cartomizers also store a lot less e-liquid than new-generation cartridges, and need to be replaced more frequently, especially when used by heavy smokers.
Cig-alikes use a disposable cartridge (tip) which contains the heating coil and the e-liquid and are usually regarded as the entry level to vaping. After a while, most users move on to larger, more advanced models. Easy Puff cig-alike cartridges come in a variety of 13 different flavours including: Coffee, Grape, Menthol, Sweet Cherry, Vanilla, Watermelon, and 6 tobacco flavours.
You may want to consider a Cig-alike style device if you are looking for:
A device that mimics exactly the look, feel and action of smoking a tobacco cigarette
A device that is easy to maintain with no liquids to fill or coils to change
A device that is much cheaper than smoking cigarettes
Simply screw a cartridge and battery together and start vaping
What Is A Pen Style Mod ?
A pen style vape mod is exactly what it sounds like - these types of vapes are shaped to resemble a pen. These mod types are cylindrical in shape, a familiar shape to those who smoked in the past. Vape pen mods are quite simple in construction, consisting of a battery with a firing button, an atomizer and a mouthpiece.
They cost anywhere between $50 to $100 or more, depending on the brand. They can be recharged, and unlike the Cigalike they have a refillable tank instead of a throw away cartridge so every time the e-liquid runs out it can be refilled making them more cost effective. Because of this Pen-style mods can enjoy a never-ending number of e-liquids and flavours, which provide more choices than users can get with Cig-alikes.
Because of its simplicity, pen style mods are the most common types of vape. With a single battery, these devices are typically lower in wattage, but easy to carry and handle. There are many different styles of Pen Mods from the beginner eGo Pen to the more elaborate AIO (All In One) which has a built-in non removable battery.
You may want to consider a pen style device if you are looking for:
A device that most resembles a smoking experience.
A simple and low wattage device.
An affordable and discreet option.
Very few settings or options, basically "fill and go".
What Is A Box Mod ?
A box mod is simply that, a "box" shaped device which houses the battery, with a tank or atomiser that screws on top most are regulated meaning it comes with electronic control chip that allows the user to adjust voltage and has safety features built in like reverse battery and overheat protection etc...
Most box mods also have removable batteries that can be charged externally while a fresh battery is inserted allowing the user to vape continuously without waiting for the device to recharge.
They come in many different shapes and sizes some have up to three batteries which in most cases will last more than a day or allow the user to add a big tank and coil resulting in huge vapour clouds.
You may want to consider a Box Mod style device if you are looking for:
A device that has all the bells and whistles
A device that has built-in safety features
A device you can use with different tanks and atomisers
A device that will allow you to expand your vaping experience
